‘Il cervello è il mio secondo organo preferito’: così afferma Woody Allen in uno dei suoi celebri aforismi. Del resto, la parola più usata dalle decine di persone intervistate per la stesura di questo libro, alle quali è stato chiesto di definire uno tra i più amati cineasti del mondo, è stata ‘genio’. Gente che ha lavorato con lui o ha avuto l’opportunità di conoscerlo molto da vicino, persone che parlano con cognizione di causa, anche se ovviamente Allen non è d’accordo: ‘Io un genio? Allora cosa sono Shakespeare, Mozart o Einstein? No, no, sono solo un comico di Brooklyn che nella vita ha avuto molta fortuna’. Natalio Grueso racconta della gentilezza e grande umiltà del maestro, che, superati gli ottant’anni, non smette di dedicarsi a ciò che più ama – il cinema, la scrittura e il jazz – e rifugge i red carpet, considerando i premi oggetti fatti per ‘prendere polvere’. Un grande genio comico che ha debuttato come ghostwriter e come cabarettista prima di diventare il riferimento della cinematografia del ventesimo e ventunesimo secolo, senza dimenticare le sue origini e i grandi maestri che lo hanno forgiato quando si infilava nei vecchi cinema della sua giovinezza per ammirare i capolavori di Bergman e del neorealismo. Una passione, questa, che condivide con l’autore a cui è legato da una ventennale amicizia, che ha avuto il privilegio di seguire in prima persona la sua storia personale e professionale. Ne nasce un ritratto assolutamente inedito, intimo, sulla sua carriera, le sue fobie, i suoi hobby – tra cui una poco conosciuta passione per la magia – e sul suo modo di lavorare e concepire la vita.

Con motivo del 80 cumpleaños de Woody Allen, Natalio Grueso, amigo íntimo del cineasta, escribe un libro cómplice y personal sobre el genio neoyorquino, imprescindible para la inmensa legión de seguidores que tiene en todo el mundo. Woody Allen es una de las personalidades más importantes de la cultura de nuestro tiempo. Cineasta, dramaturgo y escritor, tras Chaplin y Groucho Marx, es el último de los grandes maestros de la comedia y la inteligencia aplicada al séptimo arte. Este libro nos muestra al genio neoyorquino en su faceta menos pública y nos invita a conocer un Woody más cercano e íntimo a través de testimonios exclusivos de quienes han tenido el privilegio de conocerlo personalmente y trabajar con él a lo largo de su carrera: desde su pasión temprana por la magia y el humor hasta sus filias y fobias sobre cine, música o literatura pasando por anécdotas inéditas de sus rodajes y sus estancias en España. Algunas frases de Woody Allen: «Mi cerebro es mi segundo órgano favorito.» «La última vez que estuve dentro de una mujer fue cuando visité la Estatua de la Libertad.» «En Beverly Hills no tiran la basura, la convierten en televisión.» «Odio la realidad, pero es el único sitio donde se puede comer un buen filete.» «Más que vivir en el corazón de la gente, me gustaría seguir viviendo en mi apartamento.» «Por alguna razón me aprecian más en Francia que aquí. Los subtítulos deben de ser realmente buenos.» «No puedo escuchar tanto Wagner, ¿sabes? Me entran ganas de invadir Polonia.» «No es que tenga miedo a morirme, es tan solo que no quiero estar allí cuando suceda.» «Me interesa el futuro porque es el lugar donde voy a pasar el resto de mi vida.»

First published in the New Yorker in the 1950s, Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: an Introduction are two novellas narrated by Buddy Glass, a character often said to be a portrait of Salinger himself. In the first, Buddy has taken leave from the army during World War II to attend the wedding of the eldest Glass brother, Seymour, and an atmosphere of portentous suspense sets the scene for the tragedy that will follow. In the second, Buddy reminisces about Seymour and the novella unfolds into a deep and far-reaching exploration of a complex and sad character which displays all the tenderness and subtlety which distinguish the best of Salinger's writing.

Tim Burton is one of the great modern-day visionaries of cinema, a director who has fabricated his own deliciously nightmarish universe in movies as extraordinary as Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Mars Attacks! and The Nightmare before Christmas - not to mention his twisted takes on the tales of Batman, Sleepy Hollow and Planet of the Apes. Following the release of his re-imagining of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with long-time comrade Johnny Depp (who also provides a new foreword here), this updated and fully illustrated new edition of the definitive Burton interview book casts light on Burton's Burbank childhood, his early work at Disney, the recurrent themes and stunning designs of his movies, and the creative obsessions that fuel them.

Following the wild success of his novel, Carnovsky, Nathan Zuckerman has been catapulted into the literary limelight. As he ventures out onto the streets of Manhattan he finds himself accosted on all sides, the target of admonishers, advisers, would-be literary critics, and – worst of all – fans. An incompetent celebrity, ill at ease with his newfound fame, and unsure of how to live up to his fictional creation’s notoriety, Zuckerman flounders his way through a high-profile affair, the disintegration of his family life, and fends off the attentions of his most tenacious fan yet, as the turbulent decade of the sixties draws to a close around him. But beneath the uneasy glamour are the spectres of the recently murdered Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr., and an unsettled Zuckerman feels himself watched...
